A reader sent this to me today, and I couldn’t help but share it with the rest of you since A) it’s about whiskey, and B) It’s about whiskey triumphing over evil in the fight against killer sofas. Apparently an old blue hair somehow tripped and got trapped by his sofa. He was stuck there for 60 hours. A whiskey bottle rolled within reach and he grabbed it and took a sip.
“The whole settee tipped over catching me like a rat in a trap,” he said
“I took a sip of [the whisky] and thought, well this isn’t too bad.”
I had to read that a few times to make sure I had it right. A man with back problems is stuck in an uncomfortable position he cannot get out of, and has no one around to help him get out, takes a sip of whiskey and realizes that life is just not that bad.
This is a man who makes my insignificant little problems look like absolutely nothing. If Josh Wharton wasn’t such a bad ass. This man would be getting Whiskey Wednesday alone.
Thanks Anne for the story.
